Charis SIL provides glyphs for a wide range of Latin and Cyrillic characters.
Charis is similar to Bitstream Charter, one of the first fonts designed
specifically for laser printers. It is highly readable and holds up well in
less-than-ideal reproduction environments. It also has a full set of styles
- regular, italic, bold, bold italic - and so is more useful in general
publishing than Doulos SIL. Charis is a serif proportionally spaced font
optimized for readability in long printed documents.
This is a nice, clean package; you should consider submitting a specfile
template for fonts. Upstream's download system is annoying, but that's not your
fault and you at least provided instructions for getting the source.

in paying attention to line endings in a PDF file.
rpmlint output is fine.
The package meets the naming and packaging guidelines.
The specfile is properly named and follows rather exactly that of a previously
The source file matches upstream.
The license is appropriate and included as %doc.
Thanks a lot for the review. Imported and built.

OTOH, ghosting fonts.cache-1 doesn't hurt anything either, and maintains
compability with older releases.
